Dear Christine

Yes there are positions left in the company, even one year after posting this ad as Global have been struggling to find a suitable candidate!!   Please do show yourself as Global are very interested in your CV which is taken directly from your bio on this site

'I'm excited to travel to marketing live events (2 to 4 per year in awesome locations) to meet the incredible achievers of different community. I have high standards for my work. Details matter to me. Results matter to me. Excellence matters to me. I am a voracious learner and excited to embark on a tour of mastery. I am invigorated by the constant change of my high-growth organization''

In fact Global would like to offer the role although there is some concern about how you will manage the daily commute from Jacsonville, USA as the buses round here are a bit sh*te, but as you indicate your excitement about travelling you will have five days around the work to do so.

Please contact Global on +44 0207770254436 so Global can arrange your start date.
